'John Dies at the End': Paul Giamatti and director Don Coscarelli talk about their demented horror-comedy

John-Dies-At-the-EndDirector Don Coscarelli is best known for the Phantasm horror series—about folks getting their brains drilled out by silver spheres—and 2002′s Bubba Ho-Tep, about a nursing home showdown between an Egyptian mummy and a man, played by Bruce Campbell, who believes himself to be Elvis. Doesn’t the filmmaker ever dream of making a nice, romantic-comedy? Seemingly not. Coscarelli’s latest offering is John Dies at the End, which stars Chase Williamson and Rob Mayes as a pair of slacker-types who gain the ability to travel to different dimensions after consuming a drug called “soy sauce” and Paul Giamatti as a journalist Williamson’s character recruits to tell their bizarre tale. And “bizarre” seems the appropriate word for a movie whose outlandish sights include a flying moustache, a door handle turning into penis, and a monster made from cuts of meat.

Sundance 2013: 'S-VHS' producer Brad Miska talks about the 'apocalyptic' horror anthology sequel

On Saturday night, the horror anthology sequel S-VHS will premiere at Park City’s Library Center Theatre just a few months after Magnolia Pictures’ genre arm Magnet released its predecessor, the also Sundance-screened V/H/S. Remarkably, Brad Miska, one of the producers of the found footage series, says the second movie could have debuted even sooner. “We had internally joked about how hilarious it would be to actually have S-VHS premiere at the Toronto Film Festival before the first one came out,” laughs Miska, a cofounder of the horror website Bloody Disgusting. “But we thought that would be incredibly disrespectful to Magnolia, so we didn’t do that.”

Sandra Bullock/George Clooney drama 'Gravity' gets new release date

EW can confirm that Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity — a sci-fi epic starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney — will finally come to Earth Oct. 4, 2013.

The 3-D film, Cuarón’s first since 2006′s Children of Men, finds Clooney and Bullock playing astronauts who are stranded when their space station is damaged. Gravity was originally scheduled for a Nov. 21, 2012 release before being pushed back last May to avoid competition from blockbusters like The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Skyfall.

With its new release date, Gravity will now be going up against the 3-D conversion of Revenge of the Sith, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City sequel, and Paranoia, a thriller starring Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth.

Robopocalypse

UPDATE: Steven Spielberg tells EW Robopocalypse is still on, just undergoing a full overhaul.

The Mayans were wrong about the end of the world, and it looks like robot Armageddon is on hold, too.

Steven Spielberg had planned to make the film adaptation of the novel Robopocalypse with Anne Hathaway this summer, with a date already set for April 24, 2014. But it looks like that’s not going to happen.

'Ender's Game': Harrison Ford stares down Asa Butterfield in first photo -- EXCLUSIVE

Anyone who has read Orson Scott Card’s beloved 1985 sci-fi novel, Ender’s Game, can understand why, for the past 20 years, Hollywood has been unable to adapt the book. After all, it’s challenging enough to shoot a movie about pint-sized military recruits fighting each other in a futuristic, space-set Battle School, but it’s an even taller order to capture the novel’s complex themes about war and morality.

Fortunately for fans of the book, the long wait for a film adaptation is (almost) over. Ender’s Game will hit theaters on Nov. 1, 2013 (Summit Entertainment has just launched the film’s official Facebook page), and EW has your exclusive first look at the movie — as well as the first interview with director Gavin Hood (Tsotsi, X-Men Origins: Wolverine).  READ FULL STORY

'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' director tweets he won't helm 'Star Wars'

Cross off another director from the line-up of all-stars who’ve been eyed to helm the next Star Wars movie. Brad Bird — who, along with Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams, was approached by Lucasfilm to direct the next chapter in the behemoth franchise tweeted four simple words Saturday that no doubt rocked his nearly 50k followers: “Not doing Star Wars.”

Bird (Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol) went on to tweet that “Michael Arndt is a fantastic writer and Kathy Kennedy is a brilliant producer. I will be first in line to see the new STAR WARS.” Bird reminded his followers that he’s focused on 1952, a sci-fi project for Disney (co-written by EW senior writer Jeff Jensen and Lost scribe Damon Lindelof). He’s been traveling abroad recently to scout locations for the film.

Last week, Abrams told EW’s Geoff Boucher that the next Star Wars isn’t in the cards for him, as he has “some original stuff I am working on next.” Abrams is in post-production on Star Trek Into Darkness, a sequel to his 2009 hit Star Trek.

'They Live': John Carpenter on why his sci-fi classic is as timely as ever, plus EXCLUSIVE clips from the new Blu-ray

As Americans get ready to head to the polls, the timing couldn’t be better for a fresh look at John Carpenter’s 1988 sci-fi flick They Live. Fortunately, a brand new Blu-ray version of the film is hitting stores on election day. Aside from a slew of new bonus features and a crisp-as-a-hundred-dollar-bill high-def transfer, the film (about a blue-collar drifter who finds a pair of sunglasses that allow him see that aliens have turned us all into passive zombies) comes complete with an incendiary class-warfare political message that’s just as relevant today as it was back at the height of the Reagan/Bush era. If all of that doesn’t seal the deal, there’s also this: the sight of pro wrestling legend Rowdy Roddy Piper spouting his gem of a one-liner: I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass…and I’m all out of bubble gum.”

On the eve of the Blu-ray’s release, we got an EXCLUSIVE peek at some of the disc’s new extras and spoke with Carpenter about his rage-against-the-machine classic…  READ FULL STORY
